At one time Teflon pans were coated with a substance that was said to be harmful, but now they are using a different method that is not harmful.

I don't know. Are they trying to scare you? They seem to be wrong in any case.

So Teflon is safe..

polytetrafluoroethylene is found in every human, and it's more common in humans that drink water contaminated with Perfluorooctanoic acid (or known as C8)

Perfluorooctanoic acid is used to create Teflon but it's burned off before the final product is achieved.

From a description of a non stick pan
//- A triple layer of long-lasting Teflon non-stick provides superb food release and makes clean-up effortless. It's dishwasher safe, and free from the chemical nasties of BPA, PFOA and PTFE.//
Nothing at all wrong with James T Kirk
only if its left on heat with nothing in the pan
